Wildness and silence disappeared from the countryside, sweetness fell from the air, not because anyone wished them to vanish or fall but because throughways had to floor the meadows with cement to carry the automobiles which advancing technology produced. Tropical beaches turned into high-priced slums where thousand-room hotels elbowed each other for glimpses of once-famous surf not because those who loved the beaches wanted them there but because enormous jets could bring a million tourists every year -- and therefore did.
Itâ€™s likeâ€”I donâ€™t know, sometimes itâ€™s like chasing a pretty girl on the beach. And things I never thought I could doâ€¦I can do.
We need the tonic of wildness, to wade sometimes in marshes where the bittern and the meadow-hen lurk, and hear the booming of the snipe; to smell the whispering sedge where only some wilder and more solitary fowl builds her nest, and the mink crawls with its belly close to the ground.
Henry David Thoreau
Technology has advanced more in the last thirty years than in the previous two thousand. The exponential increase in advancement will only continue. Anthropological Commentary The opposite of a trivial truth is false; the opposite of a great truth is also true.
Thinking we were safe-insanity! We went in to make love. All the same Idiots to trust the little hotel bedroom. Then in the gloom... ...And who does not know that pair of shutters With all the awkward hook on them All screeching whispers?
Any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced.
Arthur C. Clarke
Any sufficiently advanced magic is indistinguishable from technology.
Arthur C. Clarke
If there is technological advance without social advance, there is, almost automatically, an increase in human misery, in impoverishment.
Advances in technology will not permit the maintenance of the status quo, as far as privacy is concerned.
Technology has not advanced because people are starved for instruments to make a better civilization, but because they are starved for entertainment â€“ technology is still mostly a toy factory for grown-ups.
Martin, Eugene J.
